Review is of Dinner in Heights Lounge - June 2013.
Stayed at this hotel back in 2008 and really loved it.
Even though we were staying a different hotel in Killarney on this occasion, decided to go to the Aghadoe for some dinner and drinks on one evening. Bad decision. Will simply state facts:
(1) Worst Mojito ever. Ever. Sounds a bit extreme but is something I enjoy when on holiday and their version came looking like radioactive waste. Had some kind of nasty liquer in it. 4 sips was all that was possible.
(2) Dinner order was misplaced. Someone else ordered the same food options as myself and my wife and they got our food. Took the staff about an hour before they realised this - ie we were ignored for this period.
(3) Food itself was poor. Well my wife thought her burger was ok, My fish was soggy and chips were tasteless. Obviously tried to rush the food to compensate for the order screw up.
They did not charge me for the beer - that was used to replace the nasty Mojito - because of the food delay.
Only other issue was that they had a function in one room where there was lots of loud music and we could hear this in one ear and the music from their piano in the other.
Got back to our own hotel as quickly as possible so we could salvage what we could from the evening.
